Guys I picked up a lightly used Mapex Meridian 6 piece the other day. The price was extremely right so I couldn't say no. This is my first Mapex anything and I'm having a problem. Don't see a lot of Mapex here on DFo but I'm hoping someone knows what my problem is. I searched around for Mapex specific forums on the web but no luck. The kick mount just isn't holding the tom mount tube securely. It easily slips down. I have the black plastic collar thing inside the mount and I with nothing mounted in it can see it closing in when tightening the wingbolt but it's just not holding a pipe. Yeah, there's a memory clamp on the tom mount tube but the mount should be holding without any weight (like toms) on it. Am I missing a metal collar or something from within the kick mount? If anyone has this same Mapex mount could you please check this pic against their mount and let me know if something is amiss? I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks.
